A spreading or trailing plant with deep purple leaves and small pink flowers in summer. Keep away from very hot sun but needs good light to keep leaf colour. Best watered with rainwater, or from below, as hard water may leave marks on the leaves. Trim back if plants become leggy and divide in spring if needed. Makes a good pot plant.
